    Back in September last year Jock Lindsey’s Hangar Bar at Disney Springs opened its doors. The 1940s era float plane hangar turned bar was inspired by the fictional character Jock Lindsey, a seaplane pilot in the film “Raiders of the Lost Ark.” Although Jock only appeared in a mere one minute of film, Disney’s Imagineers used his character to develop a backstory for the bar.

    The story of The Hangar Bar builds out Jock’s character, giving him a past as a seasoned circus pilot-turned adventurer. Later on in his life, he made his home at Disney Springs, falling in love with the place when he flew over the Florida in search of the Fountain of Youth and opened the bar, which is chock full of memorabilia from his past. Here Disney’s Imagineers share how they developed the project and created the bar.
